The format this year will be a little different than what we usually do. There are going to be two prize groups for this year’s contest, judged in different ways:
Judge’s Choice – This year’s contest is BJCP Sanctioned, meaning you will get great feedback from BJCP-certified judges. The entry fee is $5, and two unlabeled bottles (with entry sheet) must be dropped off at The Thirsty Quaker by Friday, September 19. The entry fee will be waived if also joining the People’s Choice competition. At the moment, only 75 entrants will be allowed, but more spots may open if we get more judges. These entries will be judged the week before, Saturday September 20th, 2014.
People’s Choice – The people’s choice will be similar to previous years, where contestants bring up to 5 gallons of beer to serve to attendees. If joining the People’s Choice competition, your entry fee for Judge’s Choice is waived. Kegs or bottles are both fine. Entrants may bring multiple beers, but will be limited to entering only two for consideration. Ice and tubs will be provided. Space is set at a maximum of 24 entrants!
Volunteers & Judges – If you are BJCP certified, we would love to have you attend and judge our entrants! If you are not a certified judge, we could still use your help the day of, by organizing beer for the judges and helping brewers with pouring.
